The last farmer

The Last Farmer
Neoliberism, globalization and the agriculture of farmers

a Giuliano Girelli documentary
(Indonesia, Guatemala, Burkina Faso, Italy 2011 - 90 min.)

Produced by Mais ong, as part of the Creating Coherence project financed by the European Commission. Co/produced by Associazione Documè and Babydoc Film


The agriculture of farmers produces food for 70% of the planet’s population, whereas industrial agriculture covers no more than 30% of it. Nonetheless 2.8 million people in the world live on less than 2 dollars a day. Most of these people are farmers or ex-farmers who now live in shanty towns of one of the big cities of the world. This documentary is about them, about globalization and therefore also about us.

The Last Farmer explores the dramatic consequences of neoliberism and of globalization on the lives of small farmers in the world and follows the unfolding of a day’s events for Baldomera in Guatemala, Agi in Indonesia and Aloise in Burkina Faso. It includes interviews with Luciano Gallino, Hira Jhamtani, Giorgio Cingolani, Magaly Rey Rosa, Mamadou Goita and Roberto Schellino.
